The head of cryptocurrency exchange Binance Changpeng Zhao (CZ) in a recent tweet post called Craig S Wright (CSW), an Australian computer scientist and main supporter of Bitcoin SV (BSV), a "fraud."

CZ's response comes shortly after CSW recommended Binance users to withdraw assets from the exchange as soon as possible as any value on Binance is at risk.

CZ also recalled that back in 2018 he warned on the FCoin platform, which owed its customers up to $124 million in bitcoin. Zhao highlighted that he called the founder of FCoin a fraud long before the incident.

"Their founder call his own plan a «better invention than bitcoin». That did it for me. Who would say such a thing? About themselves? except scammers," CZ wrote.

Binance delisted BSV back in April 2019. Back then the exchange referred to the periodic assessment of assets, during which it can decide on whether to remove those that assets do not fit its listing criteria or not.

Previously CZ said that bitcoin price will likely increase after the halving. Binance CEO highlighted that historically halving had always been triggering a great supply/demand imbalance.
